    'Silent Witnesses' meets tales of horror with a quiet love

    Review: 'Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play' at Theater Wit
    "Cape Fear," the 1991 thriller by Martin Scorsese, is perhaps best remembered, if it is remembered at all, for a creepy, finger-sucking seduction scene involving Juliette Lewis and Robert De Niro. But if you are a fan of "The Simpsons," your head likely...

  • Larry David's play 'Fish in the Dark' thinks too small-screen

    Larry David's play 'Fish in the Dark' thinks too small-screen
    It's the pesky little things that make up Larry David's infinitely expandable comic universe. All those petty grievances and minor disputes, the slights and slips, the miscues and forced apologies — so flustering in our own lives, so hilarious in...
  • Through 'Hamilton,' the Founding Fathers might once again make history

    Through 'Hamilton,' the Founding Fathers might once again make history
    The Founding Fathers famously had a way with words, but as reincarnated in Lin-Manuel Miranda's sensational musical "Hamilton," they can now bust a rhyme with the legendary MCs. These revolutionaries still wear frock coats and breeches, but when they...
  • REVIEW: 'A Nice Indian Boy' by Rasaka Theatre

     REVIEW: 'A Nice Indian Boy' by Rasaka Theatre
    The title of Madhuri Shekar's family comedy, "A Nice Indian Boy," is a sly feint. On the surface, it appears that the nice Indian boy in question is Naveen Gavaskar, the soft-spoken only son of Indian immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area who is...

     'Chavez Ravine: An L.A. Revival' misplays the drama
    It's hard to imagine Culture Clash's "Chavez Ravine: An L.A. Revival" receiving a more handsome production than the one directed by Lisa Peterson at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, a retooled version of her 2003 staging of "Chavez Ravine" at the Mark Taper...

    Immersive theater appeals to audiences wanting to take part in art
    The warehouse is cold and dark. A claw-foot bathtub sits in the middle of the room, which is bisected by lines of hanging laundry. Against one wall, a large wooden bar; against another, a shabby kitchen and bedroom. An office cluttered with clocks and a...
  • Kneehigh's 'Tristan & Yseult' an alluring blend of myth, music

     Kneehigh's 'Tristan & Yseult' an alluring blend of myth, music
    The delightful British theater troupe Kneehigh keeps finding ways of demonstrating that whimsicality on stage is perfectly compatible with emotional grace. The company's production of "Brief Encounter," a theatrical homage to David Lean's 1945 film...
  • Angela Lansbury's spirit and star power burn as bright as ever

     Angela Lansbury's spirit and star power burn as bright as ever
    As gracious and unpretentious as her Brentwood home, Angela Lansbury radiated hospitality as she ushered me into her living room, where her honorary Oscar sits as casually as a figurine placed on a table while a kettle was whistling. Flowers sent from...
